Meet Our Pets

  • Meet our Remarkable Rabbits Binky and Fleur

    We introduced Binky into our nursery family in November 2020 when he was a tiny 8-week-old rabbit. Binky has won the hearts of all the staff and children with his playful character and gentle nature. Binky enjoys playing with his stacking cups to find treats and taking long naps in his pen.

    Over the Christmas break 2022, we introduced 3-year-old Fleur to the family. Fleur is such a gentle rabbit, who enjoys snuggling up to Binky and eating hay. Fleur has also taken to the children really well and likes lots of strokes and tickles on her head.

    Charlotte takes Binky and Fleur home in the evenings and weekends, where they enjoy a little peace and quiet before a fun week at nursery.

    We encourage the children at nursery to help take care of the rabbits at by ensuring they have water and hay; this helps to teach the children responsibility. The children also learn how to stroke and play with the rabbits gently. The rabbits can offer some lovely comfort and companionship for the children when desired. Our rabbits are also a great talking point with the children, where we can discuss healthy and unhealthy foods, what can make the rabbits feel happy and sad, as well as commenting on what the rabbits are doing.

  • Meet our Darling Ducks Maggie, Pip, Pickle and River

    Pip, Pickle and Maggie hatched at nursery in June 2023, 3 very tiny and fluffy ducklings. Since then, they have let their big characters shine through, making themselves heard in the mornings. They all love to explore the garden in search of insects and worms.

    River hatched at a member of staff’s house in August 2023. River was the only duck to hatch and therefore came to join the others at nursery to have some company. River soon became part of the clan, and the other ducks took River under their wings. Our darling ducks love to be cheeky, which includes making their grownups chase them around the pen at bedtime. Pip, Pickle, Maggie and River all love to splash in their water trays in the summer sun and take long snoozes under the hedges in the garden.

    The children love to share the gardens with our ducks and watch them explore.
